Sanket’s Review: Ragini MMS 2 is devoid of cold shivers

raginimms2Cast: Sunny Leone, Parvin Dabas, Sandhya Mridul, Sonia Mehra.

Director: Bhushan Patel

Length: 2hrs approx

Sequel to 2011’s satisfying horror Ragini MMS, the sequel is boring even with aplenty of sex and skin show happening throughout the film. But what was poised as a horror film, turns out to be a completely different and not in a good way.

Although it carries the story from prequel but the film boils down into its own world which is predictable, unengaging and aimless. This film doesn’t even care to nicely create moments that can at least raise your eyebrows. It has objectionable pace that slacken in every other scene, further breaking the rhythm. Frankly, the director seem to have more of aesthetics of sex scenes, which are deliciously established in few countable scenes and song. But when it comes to narration and horror, he seem to be below average director trying to pick a grip over Bollywood films.

The film gets on your nerves post-intermission when everything falls in place so easily, in the name of convenience that even the self-touted spooky climax falls flat on surface. There is no iota of inventiveness or even regular attempt of horror. Having ugly faced ghosts and haunting background music is too old school a trick to evoke any reaction from the audience.

The couple of songs woven in the narration out of nowhere, are still more enjoyable than the conventional wannabe horrifying scenes. Especially “Baby Doll” is a chartbuster that is the only thing to take away from RAGINI MMS 2. The writing is so dull that it can give some of the worst horrors a run for its money to be worse. And the director couldn’t really salvage a film that practically failed in its base.

The actors of the film seemed forced and dragged to screen. I laughed at places where I saw Sunny Leone trying to express through her eyes- I really can’t see this lady act. The only scenes that she convinced me were the sex scenes. She seemed too comforted and looked like she was reveling in her glory.

Save it for few countable and deliciously done sex scenes and couple of terrific musical compositions, and there is nothing else one can talk of in Ragini MMS 2. It’s a shame that the makers pitted it as a horror film and could not deliver even a one memorable cold shivering scene. It is a horrifying film, and not in a literal sense.

Rating- 1.5/5

    sunny leone is not being utilised well in bollywood. heard that the movie got a decent opening. its only due to the porn videos of sunny that are available online. when you cast someone like her, you have to push the conventional boundaries by some extent. instead what you get to see is sunny in bikinis and mini skirts. why would anyone pay to see that? mainstream actresses like mandakini and zeenat aman pushed the envelope far more than years ago. with sunny it should have been the next higher step
